Authentic history of the Mutineers of the Bounty

  • AU PMB MS 99
  • Collectie
  • 1820 - 1821

Samuel Greatheed (d.1823) was one of the founders of the London Missionary Society.

This work, written under the pen-name Nausistratus, was published as a series of articles in the <I>Sailor's Magazine and Naval Miscellany</I>, London, 1820-21, Vol.1, p. 402-6 and 449-56, and Vol.2, p. 1-8. It deals with the <I>Bounty</I> mutiny and its aftermath. The work is based on printed sources, the then-unpublished journal of James Morrison of the <I>Bounty</I>, and verbal communications from an officer of <I>HMS Pandora</I> which was sent to the Pacific to find and arrest the <I>Bounty</I> mutineers. It includes a number of details not published elsewhere. For a brief account of Greatheed's interest in <I>Bounty matters</I>, see Rolf Du Rietz's Note sur l'Histoire des Manuscrits de James Morrison in <I>Journal de James Morrison</I>, Paris, 1966.

  • 1815 - 1822

At the beginning of 1815, Samuel Hill, a sea captain, calculated that he had lost $7,000 since the beginning of the war of 1812. To repair his fortunes, he undertook the command of the Ophelia on a speculative voyage from Boston to Chile, China and return. On his return, after an absence of 20 months, he embarked almost immediately on a second and similar voyage in the Packet. On this voyage three trips were made from Chile to China. the Packet returned to Boston after a voyage of four years, eleven months and 24 days.

Informative accounts of proceedings and places visited on the voyages outlined above. On the first voyage, Hill visited or sighted the following Pacific Islands: Juan Fernandez, Galapagos, Hawaii, Ebon Atoll, Aranuka (Gilbert Islands), Santa Ana and Bougainville (Solomons), New Britain, New Ireland, the Admiralty Islands and Mapia. The accounts of Hawaii, Bougainville and Mapia are especially interesting. On the second voyage, Hill was in Hawaii on three occasions. He also landed on Agrigan in the Marianas. Otherwise he generally kept clear of the islands.

  • 1825 - 1828

Wolfe was a mate of the <I>Blossom</I>. He is said to have been particularly industrious in drawing charts and working in the observatory when it was erected on shore.

An account of the voyage of <I>HMS Blossom</I> (Capt. F.W. Beechey) which left England in May 1825 to go to Behring Strait to relieve two British expeditions that were searching for the North-West Passage. On the way, Beechey was instructed to explore such parts of the Pacific as were within his reach. After rounding Cape Horn, the <I>Blossom</I> called at Easter Island and Pitcairn Island before making an extensive survey of the Tuamotu Archipelago. The ship then spent a month in Tahiti before sailing for the Hawaiian Islands. A second call was made at Hawaii in January 1827 following a voyage to Arctic waters. The <I>Blossom</I> returned to England via Cape Horn in October 1828.

Marquesas collection

  • AU PMB MS 1170
  • Collectie
  • 1831-1834, 1853-1918

In June 1853 two ordained Hawaiian ministers, Rev. James K. Kekela and Rev. Samuel Kauwealoha, and their wives, and two deacons and their wives, were chosen by the Hawaiian Missionary Board to sail on the English brigantine, Royalist, for the Marquesas Islands located 2,300 miles to the southeast. Accompanied by New England missionary Benjamin Parker of Kaneohe Mission Station, these native couples were the first Hawaiian families to serve as missionaries in the Marquesas, 1853-1909. Supported entirely by the Hawaiian churches and the Hawaiian Evangelical Association, the deputation of native Hawaiian missionaries was predicted to succeed where non-Polynesian missionaries had failed. Although support was strong at first, it diminished over time, and in 1909, with no hope of fresh reinforcements, the last surviving Hawaiian missionaries yielded their efforts to French Protestants from Tahiti.<P>

Also included in this collection is one folder of documents pertaining to an earlier mission to the Washington Islands (Marquesas), 1831-1834. A preliminary visit to explore the islands was made by Messrs. Whitney, Tinker and Alexander of the Sandwich Islands mission in 1832. A favourable report led to the departure in July 1833 of American Protestant missionaries Richard Armstrong, W. P. Alexander and Benjamin W. Parker and their wives to establish a mission in the Marquesas. Their labours proved unsuccessful, however, and the mission was aborted. They returned to the Sandwich Islands the following year to resume their missionary work.

The Marquesas Collection, 1831-1834, 1853-1918, consists of 2.5 linear feet of manuscript material, including personal letters, formal reports of general meetings and mission station reports. Correspondence by native Hawaiian missionaries to the Hawaiian Evangelical Association in Honolulu is in the Hawaiian language. A portion of this correspondence was translated into English in the 1930s by Rev. Henry Pratt Judd, a member of the Hawaiian Board of Missions and the grandson of American Protestant missionary, Gerrit P. Judd. Microfilm copies of these translations can be found at PMB 1171. See Finding aids for details.
